Battlefield seems to have went to a more run and gun Call of Duty style in this game
Are you sure you even played this game? Sure, there are team death match and squad deathmatch modes that might remind you of call of duty, and all of
the expansion packs except, arguably, armored kill, are cod on frostbite 2 engine....
It's about as far from run and gun as you get.
conquest mode is a BF staple. You have varying sized maps with a few different objective points that you have to hold with troops or vehicles for a
short period to capture, once you control more flags than the enemy, they can't spawn in your controlled flag points, and they "bleed" tickets.
All of which takes place with tanks, jeeps, AA, helicopters and jets. Hardly run and gun.
Rush mode is an intense mode that sees a team have to attack a series of objectives called mcoms, two at a time, having to plant charges and blow them
up to open the next area of the map, allowing you to advance on the next set of mcoms. Some Rush maps also include vehicles. CoD has nothing to
answer to this.
Squad Deathmatch is similar to a team type deathmatch but each squad is pitted against the others, with only 1 armored vehicle available on the map.
There are no kill streak bonuses like airstrikes and other random BS.
But finally, a perfect example of how BF3 is so far beyond what CoD is that you can't even compare them:
You get 100 points for killing an enemy.
You get 10 points for spotting an enemy someone else kills
You get assist points for helping kill an enemy in perportion to the damage you did
You get a savoir bonus for killing an enemy that's attacking a teammate
You get an avenger bonus for killing an enemy that just killed a teammate.
In call of duty, the best you can really hope for is a headshot then a kill streak.
In BF3 you can get more points for NOT killing an enemy than you would for straight up killing him. All of the modes, even team deathmatch, require
You want to use a javelin to take out tanks or aircraft? You need some other play to "take one for the team" and spot for you while not getting
The game is 100% better on the pc, but that's negated by the hacks that are not possible on the console versions.
